Not sure: What the question is. A groin bulge or swelling is likely a hernia. Larger hernias can go into the scrotum. If you are drescribing fluid swelling of the scrotum only, then that may be a hydrocele. See your family doctor for an examination to tell what is best for you to do.

Is it possible to develop a hernia in your back?

If you are: Talking about a herniated disc, yes, very common in low back. Hernia just means something sticking through an opening, so i would need more specifics to answer your question more intelligently.
